Prehistoric

Summerhall Festival - Demonstration Room

Theatre

A punk gig about our civil liberties. A play about discovering our capacity to resist – with an original soundtrack played live. In Brisbane, Australia, 1979, Prehistoric follows Deb, Nick, Pete and Rachel as they meet at a gig, start a band and find out – the hard way – about how their town stays so quiet and boring. Based on first-hand accounts of living, playing music and making history under the notoriously corrupt and brutal Bjelke-Petersen government, Prehistoric offers an iconoclastic and hilarious take on the pivotal punk moment that still echoes today.
